Cyberbotv2 commented on Timing Of NX Launch Could Help Nintendo Grab S...:

Pachter is a clown. But he's actually 100 percent correct on this. That last statement is so key. Third parties got burned by Nintendo on the last two home consoles. What incentive do they have to come back? None. And what incentive does a current or previous Nintendo console owner have to purchase an NX. Almost none. Nintendo has managed to dilute their brand this gen.



Cyberbotv2 commented on Poll: Did The Nintendo Direct Comeback Fire on...:

The direct was a failure for me. The push of Amiibo and collectible editions alienates me, because I'm not that target audience anymore. They are relying on these core users and penny pinching them. And so many of these games don't really have that Nintendo stamp on them. Something is lacking. I may just boot up my gamecube and dive back into Eternal Darkness right now. One thing that was solidified during the Direct was that E3 was no fluke. They have little in the pipeline other than abusing their established franchises. For me, that means I'm done purchasing any new games for my Wii U, and there is no chance I come back with the NX.



Cyberbotv2 commented on Feature: The Big Nintendo Direct Summary - 12t...:

Looking at the Direct from a general gamer's standpoint vs. a die-hard Nintendo fan at this point, it was an average direct at best. Another Zelda game being rehashed is not for me. I would have much preferred a dormant franchise like Eternal Darkness being brought forward again. The inclusion of Cloud to Smash makes zero sense. I hope that's not suppose to appease Wii U owners feeling the lack of 3rd party support. The 3DS offerings looked good. I feel as if these Directs should be attempting to appeal to the lost N64, Gamecube and Wii Owners. Instead they're attempting to milk their remaining console owners for as much as possible.



Cyberbotv2 commented on Talking Point: Deep Breaths Are Needed as High...:

I'm fairly disinterested in this Direct. Honestly, what are they going to talk about. It won't be about any games we haven't heard about. It won't be about them dedicating themselves to the Wii U or 3DS. I haven't turned on my Wii U in 6 months or so. I don't see that changing. I hope people keep their expectations really low. Nintendo has dropped the ball since E3. To expect anything different at this point would be delusional.



Cyberbotv2 commented on Review: Super Mario Maker (Wii U):

So many positive reviews are popping up. This game finally takes advantage of the gamepad, and the console bundle exclusive to Walmart in the U.S. may actually be a great idea. I kept reading that Splatoon was the defining game of the Wii U, but Mario maker looks like that game. Though ZombiU, and Deus Ex do get nods for great gamepad implementation.



Cyberbotv2 commented on Talking Point: Nintendo Continues to Shift Its...:

Nintendo cannot be eyeing the prospect of digital downloads as a driving force until they establish an account system. They need to speak on this soon. Will these purchases carry over to the next Nintendo platform? Allowing access like that allows for more DLC, more Amiibo, and more trust with the Nintendo gamer.



Cyberbotv2 commented on Gorgeous Xenoblade Chronicles X Special Editio...:

Looks wonderful. I'm considering going digital on this one. The outline of the Nintendo account system should be in effect by December, and I'm expecting some type of big in digital purchases will carry over to the next device, i.e. NX. And for the collectors edition going almost 100 dollars is nothing. Considering the amount of work put into these games, that should be a standard price considering prices haven't gone up the last 20 or so years.



Cyberbotv2 commented on Poll: The Battle of the Nindies and Questions ...:

I had mentioned this with Amiibo a long while back essentially using a Wilt Chamberlain Amiibo for nba 2k to lure those third party games back to the console. The next best thing is use of the independent developers for this, and if the toys look as good as Shovel Knight, I'm more than willing to purchase not only the figure but the game. This has grabbed my attention far more than any first party Amiibo other than the anniversary Mario.



Cyberbotv2 commented on Nintendo Download: 27th August (North America):

Very, very good week. If they could drop stuff like this one week a month, that would be great. I thought the Wii U was marching to a slow death, but it feels like there are more games coming out now than before. If they could announce some sort of account based system and Club Nintendo system, that would really hook gamers to stay around.



Cyberbotv2 commented on Future Of Trine Series In Doubt Following Nega...:

@Cyber-BLP-- : interesting points. Today's audience is spoiled to the fact that a lot of work goes into the majority of games, and these artists have to be paid. Steam waters down the collective audience expectation. And with the internet and social media, God forbid an artist, developer or publisher open their mouth, they end up lambasted and alienated.



Cyberbotv2 commented on Pokémon Brawler Pokkén Tournament Coming To ...:

Ridiculous and baffling. Great way to announce it where 2 people might notice outside of Nintendo fans. And they're treating the Wii U as if it's dead, with their announcement of the NX. I love Nintendo, but things seem the same as ever.



Cyberbotv2 commented on Talking Point: Nintendo's Dismissal of Chris P...:

Any employee that signs a contract needs to know their role. This firing, was unfortunately for him and his family justified. Nintendo is iron clad with their employees. Especially, in the digital age, this type of stuff could be taken way out of context and affect Nintendo. I'm sure a few shareholders and higher ups were alerted to this, and said initiate the termination asap. Again, unfortunate, but you have to know better.



Cyberbotv2 commented on Nintendo Download: 13th August (North America):

I want Pandoras Tower....but I'm still waiting for the unified account system/Club Nintendo replacement. It's tough purchasing anything knowing the NX is coming and that they may just drop the Wii U with no carry over of these purchases, more so due to the amount of digital purchases I made. I'm not falling into a PS3 situation again.



Cyberbotv2 commented on DeNA West CEO Believes Nintendo Smart Device R...:

This sort of talk from a CEO is all fluff. There are no new ways of playing with a smartphone. But there is a great way to lure the drones that play all the free games. Give them Super Mario Bros 3, and have them advance to a certain stage at which point the player feels superior. Then bam! Drop an Advertisement with a printable coupon for a new Wii U for 300 dollars.



Cyberbotv2 commented on Nintendo: Wii U GamePad Is The Only Real Innov...:

Nintendo sure is confusing. NOA seems to have given up on the Wii U, yet he's talking about Super Mario Maker and Starfox....uh, what? Where's the Super Mario Maker Amiibo bundle? Console bundle? Where's the new unified account system and Club Nintendo? And Reggie mentioned they were transition. Moffitt almost sounds like there is no NX, or he doesn't know about it...which sounds more plausible.



Cyberbotv2 commented on GameStop Confirms amiibo 3-Pack Pre-Order Even...:

What a total load of garbage. I work six days a week, with Sunday off, and they have this at the worst possible time. For the first time, I actually want these amiibos, but they will be snatched up by people with lots of time and no responsibility. I have no respect for this type of stuff with Nintendo. They are appealing to the hardcore out there that can find time to go to stores and line up for these things.



Cyberbotv2 commented on Xenoblade Chronicles X Wii U Bundle and Specia...:

@Discostew : That's true about Gamestop exclusivity. I wonder if there is any way to allow hard copy users the ability to use the game on the gamepad. Staying in topic though, no way I see anything like a steelbook or bundle being announced in the U.S. They have said Jack squat about the Super Mario Maker Amiibo bundle. Europe is their worst market and they're getting all the incentives? Man, NOA doesn't want me to purchase anything.



Cyberbotv2 commented on Rumours and Contradictions Are Everywhere in T...:

I was in gamestop picking up Rare Replay, and the gamestop saleswoman said something big was happening Saturday and she was opening an hour earlier. I work every day except Sunday. So I gave up on following up that. So I asked her about a Super Mario Maker Amiibo bundle. She said they have yet to hear about that and I was added to a long list of folks inquiring about this! Nintendo makes things way too hard. I'm an adult with a job and an actual life. I don't have the time to check back for stuff like this. It's as if Nintendo is appealing some unemployed, hardcore collector with nothing better to do. Ridiculous.



Cyberbotv2 commented on Soapbox: It's A Tragedy That Rare Replay Isn't...:

@MrWarner14 : I agree about emulation and all this torrent downloading. If you want to access something, from movie, games to music, I always believe in rewarding the artist. Especially for games. Rare Replay is a great way around this, since they have developers diaries, video commentaries, and an overall improved presentation.



Cyberbotv2 commented on Soapbox: It's A Tragedy That Rare Replay Isn't...:

@VanillaLake : You're speaking to the choir! Preach on! Many of those N64 games from Rare were just so polished and ridiculously good. Microsoft has said they will likely have DLC ready for this. Can you imagine a cleaned up Goldeneye? Or one of their many licensed games, which I'm sure Microsoft will pay for. Yeah, I do miss those times with my N64, before friends passed away or moved on. If I can even feel a little of that for a moment, I'm good.



Cyberbotv2 commented on Soapbox: It's A Tragedy That Rare Replay Isn't...:

This is one of the huge reasons I got an Xbox One. Also the upcoming Elite controller. The upcoming 3rd party games. And the upcoming backwards compatibility. The Rare Replay is as Reggie Fils-Aime "a great value." Also, this opinion piece notes how this should be on a Nintendo console. I hate to say this but most of the folks that originally played these games moved on to Microsoft and Sony a long time ago. All my friends went from the N64 to the Xbox. It took me 15 years, but I finally did too. It's ridiculous to insinuate that current Nintendo console owners deserve this, when in reality the original fans have long moved on. Get real.



Cyberbotv2 commented on Dragon Quest XI Is Coming To The Nintendo 3DS ...:

These Dragon Quest games take a long time to come out. NX or the Ultimate Super Nintendo Entertainment system might come in 2017 after all. The other thing I noticed though is that the NX could be as potent as PS4 or weak as the 3DS. Guaranteed hybrid. I'm a corporate magician!



Cyberbotv2 commented on Editorial: Super Smash Bros. Should be Integra...:

Well the new system needs a name. Something ridiculous, like the Ultimate Nintendo Entertainment system. For me, they could release Smash, Kart, whatever at launch, I'd be very hesitant to purchase. The way they killed the N64, the cube, the Wii, and now Wii U, why would any of those previous customers trust them? They keep losing customers each generation, with the Wii being an exception. They need to earn trust at this point. I'm sorry, but I can only stomach so many platformers. Only so much Nintendo mascot themed games. Anyone saying they don't need EA, Ubisoft, or any of these 3rd parties is smoking something. No home console will survive without the yearly Madden, or NBA 2K, and even Assassins Creed at this point. And they need variety. What happened to Eternal Darkness? What happened to their rich back catalogue? They can't talk to Disney to give us Aladdin from back in the day? They can't talk to WWE and work out an online No Mercy? They can't come to an agreement with Microsoft about Goldeneye 64? Again, they have a ton of work to do.



Cyberbotv2 commented on Talking Point: Wii U Gamers Have Been Treated ...:

Nintendo shoulders the majority of the blame here. They have created a console fan base that cares little for 3rd parties. How many people would have bought something like Dark Souls or NBA 2K on the Wii U. Probably too few, since no one would realize these games would be coming out on the system. I just recently bought an Xbox One, and I'm enjoying Tomb Raider and NBA 2K15 as we speak. I have Halo 1-4 bundled with the system and yet to play plus Rare Replay ( 30 games!) reserved. I may not need another console from Nintendo for a very very long time.



Cyberbotv2 commented on Industry Analysts Speculate On Nintendo's Futu...:

Takeda is my lead choice due to his deep involvement in the company's hardware. Miyamoto is an odd choice. He would actually be the best of both worlds in a way. As CEO, he could watch over every game and put his two cents in all the time. But, I know jack about corporate stuff, and the inner workings of a corporation. My hope is Nintendo is able to recapture the magic they had.



Cyberbotv2 commented on Playtonic Happy to Move Away From "Box-Ticking...:

@TheRealThanos : I just purchased an xbox one a few weeks ago. I got the 1TB version with Halo 1-4 bundled with it and a free year of Gold. Some of the bundles are great value. And the upcoming game list looks in my opinion the best of the year. Rare Replay has 30 legit games coming. As a Nintendo fan that definitely caught my eye and caused me to move towards a purchase. I don't know what you're into, but they have a Madden bundle arriving with a free year of EA Access mid August, and a Gears of War bundle at the end of August. Microsoft is providing the best value with a great amount of games moving into next year. I cannot say that about Nintendo and even Sony right now or in 2016.
